Russia warns Japan about its foreign policy

Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev warned Japan against adopting a new militarization approach, which exacerbates the seriousness of the situation in the Asia-Pacific region.
TASS news agency quoted Medvedev as saying at events held in the city of Yuzhnosakhlinsk in the Russian Far East following the victory over Japan and the end of World War II: “It is unfortunate that Japan is pursuing a new militarization policy, as the current Japanese authorities are heirs to authorities that once faced a disgraceful end.”
Medvedev warned that the Japanese authorities, with the support of their American sponsors, have begun to actively develop the Japanese military infrastructure, and foreign weapons are being purchased, including offensive weapons, and restrictions imposed on the development of the Japanese “defense forces” and military operations abroad are being lifted, stressing “Military exercises near the Russian Kuril Islands seriously complicate the situation in the Asia-Pacific region.”
Medvedev also called on Japan to benefit from the lessons of history on today’s unforgettable anniversary, stressing that Tokyo must fully acknowledge the results of World War II, do everything in its power to prevent the outbreak of a third war, and abandon its military ambitions in the service of its people.
Medvedev pointed out that Tokyo, with its attempts to rewrite history, justify war crimes, and whitewash their perpetrators, as happened in the middle of the last century, is now supporting a new Nazi regime, and this time, unfortunately, in Ukraine.
In another context, Medvedev revealed that 280,000 Russian citizens have contracted with the Ministry of Defense to serve in the Russian army since the beginning of this year, some of whom are reserve personnel and volunteers.
